Two more rave reviews for “Planet Hulk”

Broken Frontier has posted a rave review of “Incredible Hulk” #92, the sold out first issue of the “Planet Hulk” storyline, written by Greg Pak with art by Carlo Pagulayan. Here’s an excerpt:

Greg Pak may have come to comics scripting from a screenwriting background, but if this issue of The Incredible Hulk is any indication he�s a natural. The narration captions at the bottom of page 1, for instance … [evoke] both an epic as well as a personal journey ahead, and the one-page set-up scene it concludes is written with as much empathy and economy. A tightly paced and engrossing read follows, Pak animating his scenes with crack (and at times hysterical) dialogue and engaging characterizations.

HulkNews.com has also reviewed the book. An excerpt:

It�s (pun-alert!) INCREDIBLE! And I am absolutely genuine when I say this is probably the best take on the Hulk since the end of Peter David�s first run in Vol. 2 #467.

IGN Comics rates Pak’s first Hulk issue “Must Have”

IGN Comics has given its highest rating to “Incredible Hulk” #92, written by Greg Pak with pencils by Carlo Pagulayan. Here are some excerpts from the review:

… the first issue of the 14-part epic was fan-Hulking-tastic. Hulk hasn’t visited other worlds in a long time and I credit Pak and Pagulayan for creating what appears to be a very dense new planet for big green to explore…. this is the new, fresh Hulk story I have been waiting on for years.

SilverBulletComicBooks.com’s Sunday Slugfest

SilverBulletComics.com has posted seven reviews of “Incredible Hulk” #92 as its latest Sunday Slugfest. A few excerpts:

“… between the art and Greg Pak’s writing I think this will end up being one of the all-time classic Hulk storylines.”
— Michael Bailey
“If I was looking for a reason to start picking up the Hulk again (and I am, who isn’t?) I would consider this a unique opportunity to get back into it. You should too.”
— Dominic Davies
“…there�s no denying that Pak and Pagulayan have created an issue that�s just plain fun. Because in the end, hearing �Hulk Smash!� is just plain cool, no matter what alien dialect it�s translated into.”
— Adam Volk

Good advance reviews for “Incredible Hulk” #92

Early reviews are coming in for “Incredible Hulk” #92, the first issue in the epic “Planet Hulk” storyline, written by Greg Pak with art by Carlo Pagulayan and covers by Ladronn.
The Velocity Comics Newsletter notes:

I’ve been waiting for this one for a while, and it didn’t disappoint: Marvel is unleashing Planet Hulk on us! INCREDIBLE HULK #92 begins a year-long story-line putting the Hulk in situations in which you’ve never seen. Written by Greg Pak, who might just be one of the greats in waiting.

Ron Thibodeau, manager of Comicopia, writes on the Jinxworld message boards:

Marvel has achieved an amazing feat here. They took this non-HULK reader, and totally made him damn sure that he will get every single part of this story.

Trust me, kids– The Marvel Age of AWE is upon us, and I don’t say that lightly.

Meanwhile, Andrea Speed at Comixtreme gives the book three and a half stars and notes, “Those who want a type of science fiction adventure story with the Hulk… should be pretty pleased with this.”
